2017 Hit the Beat – Gala Dinner

HIT THE BEAT – In Rhythm we meet. Unity through Cultural Diversity.
Choir, Drumming, Improvisation, Solo Singing and Dance with Waldorf School Windhoek learners

Thurs. 7 Sept. 2017, 18h00 at Waldorf School Windhoek (Gala Dinner)
Fri. 8 Sept. 2017, 18h00 at Waldorf School Windhoek (Cultural Festival)

Andries de Wet Street/Avis, Windhoek

In the past years ‘Hit the Beat’ has performed with the high school at Warehouse Theatre. This year we would like to have a different venue for our project. The learners started with workshops in July and will continue in September with an exciting performance at the Cultural Festival on 8th September 2017 at the Waldorf School.

In addition, we would like to invite you to a special Gala Dinner on 7th September 2017. As the financial situation in Namibia has also affected the situation at school, which again is a reason why the Hit the Beat Project had to take place on a more modest level. This year we would like to use the opportunity to present our show as part of this gala dinner to raise funds for the school as well as for our ‘Hit the Beat’ Project 2018.

You will be presented with a lovely dinner and amazing performances throughout the evening containing: dancing, drumming, improvisations, solo singing as well as the High School Choir.

The aim of ‘Hit the Beat’ Projects is to bring together young people through music and movement. With the help of art we can deal with discrimination and prejudice, trying to put cultural identity in connection with cultural diversity. When we work together in an artistic setting, we are all the same and each young person can show individual skills which help to form group unity. This is an aim Waldorf School Windhoek has in its curriculum already. Through our ‘Hit the Beat’ Project we try to support this aim artistically. > read more
